Hakata has been settled since ancient times. It's was a well known port in the Japanese middle ages, and was even the site of a significant Mongolian invasion. As such, it has a rich cultural and folkloric history. Funnily enough, you wouldn't think so, looking at Fukuoka. The city is so urban, it's hard to imagine it was anything but a modern city.

The whole point of this museum then, is to keep alive the memory of Hakata's folk heritage. Machiya means 'townhouse' and the museum has three. Most of the exhibits focus on the Meiji and Taisho periods. There is an exhibit on the Hakata dialect of Japanese, an explanation of the Yamakasa festival, and occasional musical performances by local artists.
